The Tower of London is one of the capitals best loved attractions. Let one of the Yeoman Warders, better known as beefeaters, take you on an exciting tour of this historic landmark with lively anecdotes to bring the past to the present day. As you wander around, try and spot the ravens that live here, who are said to protect the tower from enemies, and be sure to explore the White Tower, where you can see King Henry VIII’s armour and the beautiful chapel of St John the Evangelist, dating back to the 11th century. Other highlights include the prisoners exhibition and the Crown Jewels.

In the evening, why not catch a show in the West End, from musical favourites Grease and The Lion King. Shakespeare’s Globe is also a great chance to see some British theatre in traditional surroundings, just as the great playwrights contemporaries would have experienced it. The Menier Chocolate Factory, dating back to the 1870’s when it was indeed a chocolate factory, is now a 180 seat theatre showcasing plays and musicals to critical acclaim. For dinner and spectacular views over the Thames, The OXO tower serves decadent dishes with exceptional wines and expertly mixed cocktails- if you’re looking for somewhere to impress a loved one, this is it.

The Golden Hinde, moored on the Southbank, is a replica of Sir Francis Drake’s famous vessel. Take a guided tour onboard, or even hire it out for events. Nearby is the famous Borough market. You’ll feel as though you’ve wandered into food heaven, as you meander through the stalls of freshly prepared paellas, hot pies and fresh fish stands. It’s a great place to pick up some cheap lunch on the go and take in the atmosphere of a typical London market. Afterwards, grab an award winning coffee at Monmouth, just by the main entrance.
